Notes:
The second US Open at Flushing Meadows crowns a young 16 year old in pigtails as champion. The hard courts were still tough on the feet as 8 men and 4 women retired. There were complaints about the "swells" and "dips" on center court, which also had a slope on one end. The sticky surface got a lot of flak, especially after Regina Marsikova went over on her ankle after only a couple points vs. Virginia Wade in the round of 16. Regina had to be wheeled off the court in tears.

Surrounded by an entire entourage of family, coaches (Landsdorp and serving coach Roy Emerson) and 2 agents, the teen turned into a "ruthless little dictator who rules the baseline with an iron will and whiplash two handed backhands". Off court she giggles and answers questions with "I dunno" or such Tracyisms as "it was tension city out there".

Tracy held up well in facing down someone younger than herself for the first time. She took out 15 year-old Andrea Jaeger in Rd 2. Jaeger is the youngest to get a direct entry into the US open, while 14 year old Kathy Horvath is the youngest ever competitor. Austin said of Jaeger, "I didn't hit as many moon balls at that age".

"Tension city" came in the match of the Open, Austin's wild 4th round encounter with slicing and charging Kathy Jordan on the grandstand. Jordans answer to a shaky backhand is to "catapault to net at every opportunity and fling herself in the line of opposing bullets".At 5-6 15-30 in the third Tracy was on the knife's edge, two points form defeat-"but responded with 2 sizzling forehands" to even matters. By now Kathy's demeanor "which sometimes rivals that of McEnroe's worst scowls. turned surly". The tiebreak was full of contested calls by Jordan, who left the court muttering how "the stars get all the breaks". Austin was gracious in victory but showed her own cold streak in declaring how she never thought she would lose the match.

In the semis Austin upended Martina for the third time this year by going to Navratilova's forehand more often than usual beofre working on her weak backhand "like a cavity". Martina's sliding and skidding volleys sat up more for Austin on the Deco Turf.

"Tracy, pigtails bobing, would pounce on short balls and pound them deep and hard to the backhand". Despite her surface disadvantage Martina had Austin at 5-5 0-40 on Trcy's serve in set 1. After Austin recovered in that game she never looked back. Martina flung her racquet to the ground in disgust at that point and was promptly broken. Teary eyed but complimentary of Austin in defeat, Navratilova came up with the line of the day. "At least I got one round further than Bjorn".

Evert had no problems in reaching her 5th consecutive US Open final. Much anticipated matches vs. Goolagong and King were blowouts for Evert. High winds marred the quality of all the quarterfinals. Billie Jean had injured her neck the night before the semi when she hugged a friend. King gamely soldiered out to play rather than default and dissapoint a big crowd. Her reward was one game.

Evert was anxious for the final. She said of Austin, "Tracy has no nerves-- just like I was at 18 or 19 ". Here was someone who did all the things she coud do, only Austin was a younger and fresher model. Austin worked over Chrissie's forehand with deep backhands down the line. Evert broke Austin early only to give the break back twice, the second time by blasting an overhead inches wide. Faced with her own medicine, Evert was curiously timid, as if waiting for Austin to crack. When asked if she was nervous at all afterwards Austin chirped, "No way". Tracy let out a high pitched squeak on winning and skipped up the net. As Tracy was mobbed by photographers Evert quietly went over to her freind's box where Casals and Navratilova were crying. "Chrissie forced a smile and tried to console them".

It took Austin to do what nothing else has-gain Evert the sympathy of the record crowd of 18,288.

The crowd was more in favor of Austin, but not like the crowds for her previous 4 finals. Has the mantle she's worn for 4 years finally passed to Tracy?

Doerner replaced Carrie Meyer in the main draw.
Whitmore=Buchanan

In an unusual bit of scheduling, Navratilova was made to play 3 doubles matches the day before her big semifinal showdown with Austin. (A bit of "home cooking" from the officials? )

As Wade continues a slide (the defending champ bounced in the 1R-1979 is the first year she's not won a title since the early 60s), King and Goolagong continue moving upward. Japanese-American Ann Kiyomura (SF) is a real fan favorite in Japan, despite not speaking Japanese.

Dianne Fromholtz, always a threat to the top players, dumps Martina, and Evonne Goolagong continues Tracy’s post-US Open woes to meet in a final. Dianne can't overcome the final hurdle, losing to her countrywoman for the 11th time in their last 12 meetigs. "This is just what I needed," said Evonne. " now I know that i can still do it."

Note per Preacherfan: This is the first final I remember televised by ESPN. We didn’t have cable yet, but my friend told me he watched this match and I knew I had to get cable.

ends October 7 Madrid International, Madrid (Clay)

FI: Shirley Brasher d Belinda Thompson 4-6 6-1 6-2

This result comes from the New York Times, which has Balas Taroczy winning the men's final over Jaime Fillol.

Note that the WTA site has dates of october 10-14 rather than an October 8 start date.

Heat affects play. Turnbull was bothered by it in the semis. The final saw the mercury rise to 90 degrees. Martina declared to be happy to win the final in straight sets, "because I don't think I could take it with this heat." What Martina does take with her is the #1 computer ranking and a 4-2 head to head vs Chris this year.

The 56 minute match swung on a couple of facotrs. One was Chris' poor serving. She only made 18 of 45 first serves. By compariosn Martina's serve boomed in, dropping serve only once.

Goolagong shows she’s near top form with her second consecutive tournament victory and straight set win over Austin. A bubbly Evonne said "I think tonight was the best I have ever played" after beating the young American.

Meanwhile Chris Evert-Lloyd defaulted in the semis due to her tonsils. She had uncharacteristically struggled earlie in the week, taking over two hours to dispose of Ruzici in the QF.

Evonne's win gives her a 28-9 edge in her head to head matchups with Virginia. Wade's only consolation is the match lasts over an hour at 62 minutes. After the 16 point first game went to Evonne she rolled through the match. Virginia opined of her 13 match losing streak, "It's a pyschological thing against her."

A notable early round match was Stoll-Fromholtz. Caroline crazy topspin and moonballs had Dianne in tears. At 1:45 in the morning and 2 and half hours of fighting she screamed "I can't go on anymore!" and retired.

41,903 saw the event (a state record), with 5,388 for the final. Theis was the first women's event to be televised all-week in the US on a local cable channel.

Wilcard Lena Sandin provides the local excitement for the week by getting all the watys to the semis.

South African Brigite Cuypers, only 23, has declared this will be her last year. She says she won't be swayed after upsetting Wendy Turnbull. Why? "It's the travel. It doesn't make me happy to travel 9 months a year."

Billie Jean busted her bahoolas off to win here. In the semis King-Ruzici tussle goes on 2 and a half hours. Vergie was only 3 points away from an upset win at 4 all in the tiebreak. An exhuasted King refused to speak to reporters afterwards.

In the final is one of the oldest for a tour event-the combined age being 70. Billie jean is cruising to an easy win at 6-3 3-0 when Stove catches fire. Betty wins the tiebreak. At 4-4 in the third King double faults to go down 4-5. "I thought I had lost it at that point. I was just praying to get a racquet on her serve." At 15-30 King hit a winning stop volley. A Stove ace brought it to 30-40 but after 2 hours and 38 minutes King claimed the top prize.

Only 1,400 came to see the final. King remarked, "In Europe, women's tennis is ten years behind. I wonder if it will ever be like in America? The corwds for us were as poor as when I first played here."

The men start their $170,000 event on the last day for the women.

November 2-4 Wightman Cup West Palm Beach, Florida, US (Clay) United States d Great Britain 7-0
Venue: West Palm Beach Polo and Country Club

US Captain: Rosie Casals
British Captain: Virginia Wade


Day 1

Chris Evert-Lloyd d Sue Barker (GB) 7-5 6-2

Day 2

Kathy Jordan d Anne Hobbs (GB) 6-4 6-7 6-2
Tracy Austin d Virginia Wade (GB) 6-1 6-4
Tracy Austin/Ann Kiyomura d Jo Durie/Debbie Jevans (GB) 6-3 6-1

Day 3
Tracy Austin d Sue Barker (GB) 6-4 6-2
Chris Evert-Lloyd d Virginia Wade (GB) 6-1 6-1
Rosie Casals/Chris Evert d Sue Barker/Virginia Wade (GB) 6-0 6-1

With Wade aging, Barker no longer a consistent threat, and few British junior hopes, the Wightman Cup has bleak hopes for the future. The goings on at West Palm do nothing to conter the impression. On the opening day Barker self destructs vs Evert-Lloyd, making 33 errors off her normally deadly forehand side and 26 off the backhand. Sue wildly falils at shots and misses her chance, as Chris was not at her best either. Rain then pours down on the seconf match as Kathy Jordan jumped out to a set lead vs Hobbs.

Summary written by Ann Jones (from 1980 World of Tennis Annual)

Everyone agreed that the second Porsche Classic ...was a happy tournament, especially for teenage terror Tracy Austin.

A year ago in Stuttgart , the 15 year old schoolgirl had celebrated the start of her professional career with a decisive final win aganst Betty Stove. Twelve months and some $420,000 later , the schoolgirl returned as the US Open champion-an altogether more mature competitor-and claimed her second Porsche title and a second Porsch sports car, which she again preferred to the first prize on $20,000. hitting her forceful ground strokes with relentless accuracy, she outplayed Chris Evert-Lloyd and Martina Navratilova in the last two rounds, for the loss of a meagre 10 games. The feeling was inescapable that a new era had arrived.

Yet the Austin express was almost derailed in the second round when Europe's leading teenager, 17 year-old Hana Mandlikova of Prague, captured the only set the number 3 seed was to lose all week. Austin was thankful to escape with a 6-4 5-7 6-4 win against a more flexible opponent who cleverly exposed her relative slowness on the turn when subjected to a mixed bag of drives, volleys and lobs.

Miss Austin's 6-3 7-5 semi..win against Mrs Evert-Lloyd was a repeat of the US Open final, though this time the reigning world champion did reach set point minutes before the end, only to be denied the game by a decision which obviously surprised her as aforehand down the line was called out.

In the top half. Miss Navratilova emerged to her top-seeded position in the final without a fuss. A quarterfinal default from Kerry Reid, who was suffering from tennis elbow, was followed by a comfortable 7-5 6-2 win over a still exhausted Mima jausovec, who had earlier played the longest match of the year. That ordeal occured in the 2R against the top-spinning Californian lefthander Stacy Margolin, who detained her for 3 and a half hours before the Yugoslav survived 6-1 3-6 7-6. In the quarters, too, Mima was taken the full distance by Nina Bohn, who covered herself in glory by eliminating $3 sed Billie Jean King.

Other notes from the wires:

Heidi Eisterlehner had to qualify when the event withdrew her wild card and gave it to Chris Evert. Bohm provides an early shocker by putting out King. Martina looks to be next, surviving a scare from Hanika, who led 4-2 and 5-4 in the decide.

In the semis Navratilova saved a set point with backhand volley winner. The contentious austin-Evert semi saw Tracy win 7 straight games from 1-3 in the first. Evert looked set to win the second set when
her forehand was called out on set point for her. Afterwards the teen attributes her win to having more stamina. "Before, when I played her I would get tired. I wasn't tired in the second set."

Tracy clobbers Martina in a 56 minute final. She won the last 9 games. Martina missed a steady stream of backhands and failed in her tactic of drawing Tracy up to net. Now that she of age to drive Austin opts for the Porsche 924 rather than the prize money. Besides, the car was worth $10,000 more in the US than Germany.

Longest match of the week was Jausovec-Margolin, which lasted 3 hours 20 minutes. Jausovec saved 4 match points in the tiebreaker.
